killer but also a pedophile. the former prosecutor, criminal defense attorney and some real characters that we're all being introduced to in this trial. dan, you first. i'm wondering about the testimony from the so-called rifleman. how damaging is that do you think to the defense? >> in terms of the actual charges that whitey bulger is facing, it's not that damaging. murder charges are going to be proved. there's overwhelming evidence. however, this case is unusual. it seems like the defense is more focused on stopping the prosecution from proving things that ruin his reputation like he's a rat or kills women or he's a pedophile and in that sense, that means a lot to the defense. in terms of whether he'll be convicted of murder, it probably won't make a difference. rick: what do you think of that point, the defense strategy here? could this be some kind of a preventative strategy before this guy goes to prison? >> definitely. i think they've had the conversation and bulger has told his attorneys, look. i'm going down. i know i'm going to prison but i at least need to be protected. i ca
two, and you are the one in charge. i worry, as a follower of defense policy, that in the circles -- with the people whom you speak, and whom i speak, there is often not enough awareness about the fact that this but the decision is the result of the budget drawdown that preceded sequestration. some of that includes the budget control act. all of these services are busy observing the first cuts under the bca and additional reductions that started in 2010. it has been on a downward trend since then. this is the fourth year of defense budget cuts and reductions, three of which predate sequestration. this is a significant change for the army. if sequestered continues into next year, 80,000 may look like an overwhelming number, and that could be that there is more. what is the impact on troops and their families, what are you thinking about as you implement this? >> you are right, these initial cuts are the $487 million budget reductions we agreed to prior to sequestration. the initial cuts were due because we have increased the size and the army because of our presence in iraq and afg
middle class. no good for our national defense. we ought to be having a debate about the kinds of medium and long term reforms to entitlements and tax program, but we ought not to be calling about holding the country hostage to a fights over extending the debt limit. >> here now brad sherman democrat from california and steve so h steve solice republican. get rid of the see questions terks raise taxes and spend more money. i'm here to tell you it's not going to happen. >> well, i don't think a lot of things being talked at by either party are likely to happen. you won't see a defunding of obamacare. you're unlikely to see the republicans agree to any revenue nths.ases in the next few what i hope we don't see is a default on the debt and those people who are talking about deliberately defaulting on the american debt are in the words of mccain giving us shenanigans that the american people have gotten tired up. >> steve, are you in the camp that basically condition want to fund any part of obamacare and would risk a government shutdown or some kind of default on the debt, are you in that c
. reaction two criminal defense attorneys from new york stacy snyder and from davey, florida, regina tombinascus. it's great to see both of you. that got everybody talking yesterday that's for sure this juror speaking out. regina, let's talk with you. we heard from that other juror b-37 who she thought both men could have stepped back. that both were responsible but that she believed that zimmerman had a right to defend himself. now this juror comes forward and says zimmerman got away with, quote: murder, but then goes on to say we reached the right verdict. can you say get away with murder and reached the right verdict? >> yes, you can actually, because there is no question that trayvon was killed by george zimmerman. the issue was whether or not it was self-defense or not. and these jurors had that question posed to them. they had the law. fanned they thought there was nord reasonable doubt there this was murder they should have spoken up in the jury room. not weeks later after media attacks their. system we agree to live by. >> laura: i don't like these post-trial interviews, firs
could be together. newman was charged with the murder and part of his defense centered on the claim that andrea snyderman was actively involved in planning the whole thing. she testified at newman's trial explaining why she was in florida at the time of the murder and denying any role. >> we were married in florida at a synagogue in florida. i was down there with my family. whose boss kills swunl's husband? i don't care if there were no affair. there was no affair. who kills someone else's husband? >> newman was convicted and sure enough, six months later, andrea snyderman was charged in connection with the murder of her husband. jury selection is underway right now, but in a surprise move, the prosecutors asking the judge to drop the most serious murder charge. essentially admitting they don't have the evidence to back it up. instead, she now faces a bunch of lesser charges, including lying to police and lying while on that witness stand. rusty snyderman's family very upset the murder charge was dropped since they say all along, they've been sure she played some kind of a role. mea
charge. he was found not guilty of aiding the enemy. cully stimson, former secretary of defense tore detainees and legal fellow with the heritage foundation and mike barrett, former intelligence officer for the office of the secretary of defense. thank you for joining us. >> thank you. >> thanks for having us. heather: why not guilty for aiding and abetting the enemy? i will start with you, cully. >> heather to, prove aiding the enemy under the statute the government had to prove one, knowingly provided intelligence to the enemy. the enemy is al qaeda an the taliban and two he did so knowingly. so there was a double burden. the judge had to be firmly convinced that was the case and clearly they didn't prove their case. one thing if he provided directly to al qaeda or taliban and posted to one of their websites. imagine this, if he gave the same information to "washington post" and guardian, and published some of it would he be charged with aiding the enemy? i doubt it. so there was a failure of proof. heather: mike, can you compare wikileaks to "washington post" and "the guardian"? >

stroked. but the sequester cuts, half of them come out of the defense budget. idea when the sequester was conceived was that it was supposed to be so terrible for both the right and the left that it could never be allowed to become law. then the compromise was struck, was no, nobody can come up with anything they like better so we'll let it become law and that's acceptable to a lot of people on the hill but it is really unacceptable to john mccain. both he and the president would really like to come up with a deal to replace the sequester and it's given him an incentive to cozy up to democrats. and work with some people like lindsey graham. >> which "cozy up," we mean talk to. i think we allow ourselves to be hijacked by this narrative that you are cozying up to narratives if you are talking to the white house about matters of national import. >> it is not just talking. the end game for mccain is to come up with a big fiscal deal that does things that conservatives would really dislike because it would unwind part of the sequester. mccain i think cares much less about the total size o
in a minute. here's my general question. should the united states be primarily concerned with its own defense? do we have to be careful we don't get invaded and two days later say somebody says if we'd only done one thing because we're concerned about civil liberties. >> if you come out what looks to be an argument and you didn't use that power, you're dead politically in this country if you get attacked. >> chris, i worked 20 feet from the oval office for years and i saw the president the national security team grapple with a very real threat of attack. and the tools that are there that the nsa provided were important in thwarting some of those attacks. if we hadn't done it, then we would indeed have had more catastrophic kinds of attacks. i think people would have been outraged about it we have to be careful how we do that, and what the president suggested is that's why we have to have the involvement of all three branches of government. the answer is not to scrap the intelligence gathering that has demonstrably helped keep the american people safer. >> i don't like this. >> trisha: i'm not
line of defense against rand paul's give me, give me, give me nonsense. i was so wrong. not about the dollars and cents. but about chris christie. he went there today. >> senator paul wants to start looking at where he is going to cut spending to afford defense? maybe he should start to cut the pork barrel defense he sends home to kentucky at $1.51 for every dollars and not look at new jersey where we get 61 cents per dollar, maybe he should look at that before he looks at the federal side. because most washington politicians only care about bringing home the bacon. >> and rand paul foolishly talked about bacon. >> this is the king of bacon, we have two military bases in kentucky. and is governor chris christie recommending we shut down the military bases? he wants to be this great champion of the military? what does he want to do, shut down the military bases? he is making a big mistake fighting with the republicans, because the republican party is shrinking there on the east coast, attacking me is not helping the party, he is hurting the party. >> two military bases in kentucky,
. it is not speaker boehner. it is because president obama, secretary kerry and the department of defense. they are the ones that are slow-walking this. i wish i could wrap it up and look everyone of those families in the eye, this is what happened, this is what was wrong, this is how the administration botched this but i can't do so until i get the administration to fest up and provide us the documents. but i will credit speaker boehner lately to actually providing the subpoenas needed to drag people in there we had classified hearings. we, as we go into the fall will have a series of open hearings where the world will be able to see us question these people. we doesn't need a select committee to do any of. we can do it within the committees and that's what we're doing. bill: jason chaffetz, the republican from utah. we'll talk soon. >> thank you. bill: martha. martha: first it was a saturday mail delivery they took away but could home delivery all together become a thing of the past? can you imagine life like that? a closer look at a controversial plan to help the postal service balance

viable defenses, what could he face what penalties could it carry as well? >> reporter: of course aiding the enemy is the most serious of charges he faces and for that he could get life in prison but there are a variety of other charges that could land him in jail for some time. manning also charged with eight charges under the espionage act, five theft charges, and two more of computer fraud. all of those federal charges. each one could get him up to 10 years in prison. on top of that there are five military counts of violating regulations punishable up to two years. manning chose to have a judge decide the case instead of a jury. it is entirely up to her now. the judge tentatively scheduled a sentencing hearing on wednesday. that could run for several weeks since each side has more than 20 potential witnesses. jamie. >> will be interesting to see if manning speaks on that. thanks so much. bill: support for anthony weiner dropping like a stone amid the latest fallout from his newest texting scandal. the former congressman held on to second place in the days after the latest story broke
